The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World

I just finished reading "The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  It's currently my favorite short story!  Please read it, and tell me what you think!  It's a piece of magical realism, so it's going to be a bit strange, but the best thing to do is just suspend your disbelief.  If you do, you'll really, really enjoy it :) Don't worry, it's not too long :)


  1. Excellent. Thanks. There is not much in my life these days but little surprises like that.
    All I have to offer in return at this time is http://www.multivax.com/
    click on text to read. Even if you have read it it is worth keeping around.
    By the way I just saw "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" last night and it was fun. I watched based on the title alone which leapt right into my imagination while in the library.

  2. Thank you for the story, OF! I have just finished reading it.....WOW! It was very thought provoking and powerful. Thank you.

    I've added "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" to my movie list, and I'll look for it the next time I go to the library. :)
